Links the specified FirebaseProject with an existing Google Analytics account. Using this call, you can either: - Specify an analyticsAccountId to provision a new Google Analytics property within the specified account and associate the new property with the FirebaseProject. - Specify an existing analyticsPropertyId to associate the property with the FirebaseProject. Note that when you call AddGoogleAnalytics: 1. The first check determines if any existing data streams in the Google Analytics property correspond to any existing Firebase Apps in the FirebaseProject (based on the packageName or bundleId associated with the data stream). Then, as applicable, the data streams and apps are linked. Note that this auto-linking only applies to AndroidApps and IosApps. 2. If no corresponding data streams are found for the Firebase Apps, new data streams are provisioned in the Google Analytics property for each of the Firebase Apps. Note that a new data stream is always provisioned for a Web App even if it was previously associated with a data stream in the Analytics property. Learn more about the hierarchy and structure of Google Analytics accounts in the Analytics documentation. The result of this call is an Operation. Poll the Operation to track the provisioning process by calling GetOperation until done is true. When done is true, the Operation has either succeeded or failed. If the Operation succeeded, its response is set to an AnalyticsDetails; if the Operation failed, its error is set to a google.rpc.Status. To call AddGoogleAnalytics, a project member must be an Owner for the existing FirebaseProject and have the Edit permission for the Google Analytics account. If the FirebaseProject already has Google Analytics enabled, and you call AddGoogleAnalytics using an analyticsPropertyId that's different from the currently associated property, then the call will fail. Analytics may have already been enabled in the Firebase console or by specifying timeZone and regionCode in the call to AddFirebase.

Required Scalar Argument

  • <parent> (string)
    • The resource name of the FirebaseProject to link to an existing Google Analytics account, in the format: projects/PROJECT_IDENTIFIER Refer to the FirebaseProject name field for details about PROJECT_IDENTIFIER values.

Required Request Value

The request value is a data-structure with various fields. Each field may be a simple scalar or another data-structure. In the latter case it is advised to set the field-cursor to the data-structure's field to specify values more concisely.

For example, a structure like this:

  analytics-account-id: string
  analytics-property-id: string

can be set completely with the following arguments which are assumed to be executed in the given order. Note how the cursor position is adjusted to the respective structures, allowing simple field names to be used most of the time.

  • -r . analytics-account-id=magna
    • The ID for the existing Google Analytics account that you want to link with the FirebaseProject. Specifying this field will provision a new Google Analytics property in your Google Analytics account and associate the new property with the FirebaseProject.
  • analytics-property-id=no
    • The ID for the existing Google Analytics property that you want to associate with the FirebaseProject.

About Cursors

The cursor position is key to comfortably set complex nested structures. The following rules apply:

  • The cursor position is always set relative to the current one, unless the field name starts with the . character. Fields can be nested such as in -r f.s.o .
  • The cursor position is set relative to the top-level structure if it starts with ., e.g. -r .s.s
  • You can also set nested fields without setting the cursor explicitly. For example, to set a value relative to the current cursor position, you would specify -r struct.sub_struct=bar.
  • You can move the cursor one level up by using ... Each additional . moves it up one additional level. E.g. ... would go three levels up.

Optional Output Flags

The method's return value a JSON encoded structure, which will be written to standard output by default.

  • -o out
    • out specifies the destination to which to write the server's result to. It will be a JSON-encoded structure. The destination may be - to indicate standard output, or a filepath that is to contain the received bytes. If unset, it defaults to standard output.

Optional General Properties

The following properties can configure any call, and are not specific to this method.
